To create these characters yourself, hold "alt" down and type the numbers in on the right side of the

keyboard (num pad) then let go of the buttons and the character will appear. This is a great way to experiment with new symbols, signs and characters, and it's also good if a button or letter on your keyboard stops working, because you can still type it using the num pad. Just look down the list to find your letter. You may also be interested in a much smaller, but more rare list of special ascii characters for text art.
